Not so wonderful: Three industrial ads. One for RIKEN (in Japan), one for a company that's a Chinese import-exporter and one for a company looking for senior med-chem directors in Shanghai. Grreeeat.


Less all around: Faculty positions dropping to flat, with lots of temporary positions.

That being said: ETH-Zurich is looking for an NMR facility manager. Sounds like fun, and you get a chance to interact with some of the world's best young minds in organic chemistry. 

Small college of the week: Bowdoin College (Brunswick, ME, student population: 1,723 - SA-LUTE!) is looking for visiting professors in biochemistry and physical chemistry. If you wish to work at the former workplace of Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain (and who wouldn't?), this might be for you!
